Ascension Fun and Fellowship

Get ready for some good times! The Ascension Fellowship Committee has been resurrected, and we already have a slate of fun events coming up. Most will be for adults to relax and enjoy time together, but we will also have family activities. Committee co-chairs are Mark and Brenda Doneux and Dave and Cindy Dorn with Ben Mattson serving as our Vestry liaison. Our fledgling committee is looking for members. Please contact Cindy or Brenda if you’re interested. And save the date for these activities coming up:

Thursday, May 26 – Ascension night with the Saints
vs. Kansas City T-Bones, CHS Field, downtown St. Paul

Tailgating begins at 5 p.m. Meet at the west end of the Dart Tailgating Lot near Lafayette and Prince Street. Bring your own beverages and an appetizer, side or dessert to pass. The fellowship Committee will provide burgers, brats, fixings, and dinnerware. This is a pay lot. To carpool, meet at Ascension at 4 p.m.

Game at 7:05 p.m. Gates open at 5:30. We’ll watch from “Treasure Island Berm” a grassy area in left field. No designated seating, so bring a blanket to sit on. Tickets will be purchased by Mark Doneux on game day. Confirm your attendance and pay $10 event fee to the Doneuxs by May 23. Contact or 651.303.1587
